What is CBD and what is CBD used for?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural, non-intoxicating compound found within the hemp plant. People use CBD for many different ailments. Suggested benefits include pain relief, improved cognition, reduction in anxiety levels and increased mobility, hence why CBD products are becoming more and more popular in the UK. CBD is proven safe, legal and non-intoxicating. 

Will taking CBD get me high?
The simple answer is NO as our CBD products contain very little to no THC which is the well known cannabinoid that produces the high. CBD is simply a non-intoxicating component which has enormous potential. Your state of mind etc. will not change at all if you take CBD.

How much CBD should I take?
Most start with our 1000mg CBD oil taking 2 or 3 drops under the tongue and holding it there for at least 30 seconds so it can absorb into the bloodstream. It’s advised to start with just 1 drop to make sure there’s no reaction, then increase slowly by a drop every 1-2 days until finding the right balance. It can take up to 2 weeks until the effects are felt as CBD needs time to build up in our system.
You can also experiment with how many drops and when to take a dose. Depending on the need, it could be a morning & evening dose, with a top up during the day. If looking at a serious problem that's hidden from sight then one may wish to go straight for our 1500mg-2000mg oil and take 2-3 drops a dose as a starting point.

What's the maximum dose?
There is no set guideline by the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) but we recommend to not exceed more than 150mg a day. 
So far, no severe overdose effects, i.e., adverse side effects, are known. Fatigue and nausea may occur in some individuals, but this usually subsides once the body gets used to the intake of CBD and these side effects are not considered a classic overdose symptom.

What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
A full-spectrum CBD, also known as whole plant extract, is made using the leaves, flowers and stalk of the hemp plant. This means it includes terpenes, fatty acids and other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG etc, not just CBD. One of the cannabinoids that full-spectrum CBD contains is THC, although the amount is too low to cause any high effect. It is believed that all of these cannabinoids work better together to create a more effective oil, this is known as the entourage effect.

Will using CBD help with my illness?
Unfortunately, we are not able to give medical advice as our CBD products are sold as food supplements to help support and maintain a healthy body and mind and it’s always important to do your own thorough research-depending on what you are using CBD for, before trying it out. 
With that said, you do not have to be ‘ill’ to use CBD. We are built to consume CBD so we believe that CBD is for everyone, no matter how healthy you may be. It provides a source of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids like Omega-3, protein and it’s organically grown too.
Regardless of your age, CBD has dozens of potential wellness benefits. Many of us realise the important of “balance” in our daily lives. Using CBD as a daily supplement is a great way to support your bodies endocannabinoid system and keep it in balance so why not use it to boost your immune system?

Is CBD legal in the UK?
CBD is legal, because hemp is legal in the UK. When it comes to cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Hemp derived Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions. If you want to use CBD products it is TOTALLY legal to do so. Although to be legal, the CBD product itself must contain less than 0.2% THC.

Is CBD oil the same as Cannabis oil?
The short answer is NO. From a consumer perspective this is what matters most when discussing CBD. 
The main difference beyond intended use is the difference in CBD and THC levels. Since THC is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, plants grown under the marijuana banner will have high THC levels. Inversely, because CBD isn’t psychotropic you’ll find it in high levels in hemp plants, which simultaneously have low THC levels.
It makes sense then that cannabis oil is predominantly harvested from the recreational strains, whilst CBD is largely extracted from industrial hemp. Both compounds are then subject to further processes that ensure the levels of either cannabinoid is adjusted accordingly.
Cannabis oils (although not legal in the UK) are used as they provide potential health benefits although they come with the famous high. CBD oils, on the other hand, have no psychoactive properties, and used for the potential benefits without causing a high.

Will using CBD oil make me fail a drug test?
After extended use of a full-spectrum CBD oil, you may test positive in a drug test due to the small amounts of THC that have built up in your system over time. If you are concerned about drug tests, we recommend that you use a broad spectrum CBD oil that contains 0% THC.
